Streicher has been a member of the aff Galerie since 2012 and is currently enrolled in the Postgraduate Program at the Ostkreuz School for Photography (Berlin, DE) with Prof. Ute Mahler and Robert Lyons.
In her documentary work Streicher is drawn to topics and regions that have been affected by major changes. Political, geographical or social, she focuses on changes that have had a significant impact on the people living in these regions. Influenced by ideas from phenomenological philosophy her interest lies in the relationship between people and places, and perceptions of belonging and identity. Her work focuses on long term documentary projects based mainly in Northern and Eastern Europe.
Since 2013, Streicher has been working on the project 'Night time tremors' (working title) in Kiruna - a small city north of the Arctic Circle in Sweden. The work examines how changing landscapes caused by iron mining effects people’s lives.
